Mary Lou Anderson Reflections Arts Enhancement Grant - Now Closed
For over 50 years, the National PTA Reflections arts program has furthered the goals of the program founder, Mary Lou Anderson. Mary Lou Anderson believed in the power and importance of the arts and dreamed that Reflections would leave a lasting impact on children across the country – and it has! Reflections has helped millions of students explore their own thoughts, feelings and ideas, develop artistic literacy, increase confidence and find a love for learning that will help them become more successful in school and in life. To learn more about Mary Lou Anderson and the impact of her vision, visit our Reflections timeline.
National PTA is proud to continue Mary Lou Anderson's legacy of Reflections through the Mary Lou Anderson Reflections Arts Enhancement Grant.
Through this grant opportunity, two local PTAs will be awarded $1,000 to administer innovative, student-centered programs that increase access to high quality arts learning experiences and new pathways for students to participate in National PTA’s Reflections program. In order to be eligible for the Mary Lou Anderson Reflections Arts Enhancement grant, your PTA must be participating in the 2021-2022 I Will Change the World By… Reflections program. In line with Mary Lou Anderson's vision, the grant dollars must be used to provide new pathways for at-risk and underserved students to increase access and participation in arts education, including the Reflections program.
